Hi there:

There are several moving parts that comprise the heater and AC system and help them to work efficiently. If the engine was low on coolant, it’s possible that the heater core may have been damaged. However, it’s very difficult to diagnose a heating / AC issue remotely. Instead of heading to a shop, why not have the mobile mechanic come to you? One of our local mobile mechanics can complete a heater is not working inspection, so they can pinpoint what is wrong with your car in order to make the appropriate repairs.
